During a school year, there are generally 5 school closure days that are part of the 2 week spring break. However, this year, spring break falls over the Easter weekend – so Good Friday and Easter Monday are statuary holidays. Therefore, Friday, November 10 is the “5th” school closure day that will not be accounted for during the spring break. And in turn, Monday, November 13 is the in lieu of day for Remembrance Day being on a Saturday.
All schools will remain OPEN, unless there is heavy snowfall, damage or other circumstances (e.g. power outage) that make it impossible to operate safely. In the event there are certain schools or the entire district closed due to snow, or any other weather-related issues, announcements will be made on local radio stations by 7 a.m. on the day of the closure. Please do not call the radio station – tune in and listen for the announcements, or check the radio station websites.
Closure information will also be posted on the district website at www.burnabyschools.ca and on Twitter @burnabyschools (please follow us!). However, keep in mind that there may be situations where this is not possible, for example, if there are power outages or technical problems. The most reliable way to get school closure information is to listen to the local radio stations.
Information will only be provided on school closures. If there is no closure information, our schools are open for learning! However, the decision to send your child to school or not is ultimately a family decision.

The Pumpkin Patch will be coming to Sperling School on Monday, October 30 in the afternoon. All students will get an opportunity to search for a perfect pumpkin to take home. Students are asked to bring a cloth bag with handles to carry their pumpkins. All children should be dressed appropriately for the weather in case of rain.
